Feeling faint while pregnant...
Yes most likely you are anemic which can be very dangerous during pregnancy... For me I felt faint also when I didn't eat enough protein.
I felt faint when I first got pregnant but I didn't know I was and I tried to do a hard workout. I nearly passed out afterwards but that was the only time it happened. I DID find that I started getting shaky if I didn't eat pretty often. I'm not sure what causes it but I'd heard that it's pretty common to faint when you're pregnant. I may be wrong.
I was anemic but rarely dizzy or faint. I always forgot to take my iron meds... My doctors always gave me a hard time about it. Lol
I got dizzy and faint a lot during my pregnacyand all the tests came back normal. I tried to eat every few hours and sometimes just had to sit back and relax. Let your doctor know so they can eliminate any problems.
